That's one of the many boost libraries that has a header-only
implementation. See:

The boost filesystem library is an example; my installation has,
in /lib/ :

$ls libboost_file*

which IIRC were all gotten via 'setup.exe'.

I gather from a glance at the boost links above that these might be
buildable as dlls instead of as static libraries, but I think what's
relevant to your question is that this library has '.cpp' files that
must be compiled separately. I believe VÃclav was referring to boost's
sui generis build system, which I always found a bit odd; if you want
to avoid it, this might be worth a look:
